Tonight is different.

Tonight is a final chance at honest,
an opportunity to rise to my own expectations.
Tonight, the lonely whisper will lift itself above
the protestations and restraints which aim to smother.
Tonight is the set stage, the lasting impression.
the lines are prepared, the stage fright is stifled.
and Tonight,
Tonight is the bullet shot at random,
taking a guess at where the traget may be.

Tonight, everything will change.
